Frozen Yogurt Pupsicles:

What pup doesn’t like a cold treat on a hot day? Whip up this cool snack in no time by mixing together plain yogurt with mashed banana or blueberries until smooth. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays or small paper cups, freeze overnight, and pop them out when you’re ready to serve!

 

Peanut Butter Applesauce Muffins:

Does your pup have a sweet tooth? Satisfy their cravings with these yummy muffins made with applesauce, whole wheat flour, eggs, peanut butter and honey. You can also add in other ingredients like oats or carrots for an added punch of nutrition. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and let cool before serving!
